The drivers of Venetian wine have long been Soave and Valpolicella, more recently they have been joined by Prosecco and Pinot Grigio.  There is an emerging confidence, largely founded on the world-class wines of Amarone and Soave.

There are many terroir of real significance in the Veneto and pockets of winemakers who are worth seeking out; Zonta (Due Santi) in Bassano del Grappa (Breganze DOC) are fantastic, the Raboso and Sauvignon of the Piave is unique, the Tai rosso from Piovene Porto Godi in Colli Berici is particularly good and the Muscat passito (Fior d’Arancio) and spumante from the Colli Euganei is irresistible.

Caveat
Bat and Bottle is Emma and me, there are no teams of copywriters or agencies helping us out and we are constantly limited by time.  For excellent sources of information go to my blog where I have embedded useful links.  These scribblings are personal and flawed.

  8. Righetti. Valpolicella Ripasso 'Campolieti' 2012

    Coffee, chocolate and ripe fruit on the nose, there is more than hint of Amarone in the background. This is a full and forward wine that is delicious when young and always has the structure to improve for years.

  11. Conte Emo. La Montecchia Cabernet Franc 'Godimondo' 2014

  12. Case Bianche. Prosecco 'Antico' 2013

    Green apple and herb, more floral and mineral than fruit.  The process means it is a little cloudy and throws some sediment, nought taken out, it’s quite something.

    Damson, burnt caramel and fig aromas, elegant black cherry fruit, a touch of menthol, clove and strawberry jam.

  15. Bionda. Valpolicella Classico 2014

    What a wine – almost like biting into an apple with the purest black cherry fruit, incredibly floral, an exceptional light red.
